Why should I?
Look, I think we can compile a reasonable list of alchohols for approved use on the site... and a list of alternatives for the underage folk amongst us  ;)

My list would probably look like this:
Metaxa, Beer (good Beer, not the $ .60 junk my brother buys at BGSU... - something more like Guinness, Sam Adams, Stella Artois...), ouzo, wine (the whole spectrum), tsipouro (Greek Fire Water)...

(Yes, you can tell my Greek bias... so sue me - not you, SS!)

Not to have this list at the exclusion of other types, but lets take our lists and combine them into one list (8 or 10 tops?) for our use here...

BYOB!

You know, speaking of wasting time and adding needlessly to threads to make them longer... sorry, I just finished with some posts in "Aramaic Origin..."

Sorry about the frustration; now returning to our regularly scheduled alchohol dialogue, already in progress...

I would vote for a nice Single Malt, or Guinness... and maybe Port, for my friend the former Anglican...

Ah, but are you willing to include beverages for those who are *still* Anglican?  ;D  And in the non "adult" line what about tea and coffee?

Oh yes, and what about sake?

Why not include other beverages... do we have wide enough support for sake?

As far as the non-adult line, why not tea and coffee... is it being brought to us by the East India Trading Company (that was the name, right)?

If only the two or three of us are making suggestions, then I guess whatever we want could be on the list... but if there are more that will participate, then it will just depend on them too...

Oh, and thanks for the British East India bit... I had forgotten the most important part of the name, no?

I wonder, did they trade in sake and other Asian delights, bringing them to the Isles with them?

I don't know about most important, but it makes it clear where it came from.ÂÂ  Recall that the Dutch were also building a trading empire in Asia.

Some Asian delights yes, but not sake. I can think of 2 reasons right off the bat

1) Sake does not travel well when we're talking of months and months of ship board travel

2) After various tangles and dealings with the Spanish and Portuguese and the first introduction of Christianity in Japan amoung other things, the Shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu established the policy of Sakoku in which the country was closed off from any outside dealings with any country except China and Holland, and even that was to a very limited degree.

It you don't stop me, I will continue to go on about Japan.. Beware!

Maybe that is more of a reason to go with a fine Brandy or Whiskey...

Unless there's going to be sushi as well, I'd tend to agree, for one thing Brandy and Whiskey have a higher percentage of alcohol...and I've alwasy been one for efficience...but Sake, especially warm, accompanies sushi quite nicely.

Sushi? Uggh! GiC, you should know that the only thing that 'accompanies sushi quite nicely' is an airline vomit bag.

And this is from a former Louisianan, so I'm used to eating things other people would consider to be fishbait... ;)

Yes, I'm not a fan of the sushi either... the first time I went to a sushi place, I almsot got sick (maybe that's because my stomach doesn't like fish w/ backbone anymore, no?) and the second time I was the only one to get my foor teryaki!

Not all sushi is from fish with backbones, you can get sushi with crab, softshell crab, shrimp, sweet shrimp, tofu, just seaweed, cucumber, squid, octopus, scallops, clams, egg, salmon roe, smelt roe, and my personal favourite...sea urchin. All of these types of sushi will go quite nicely with sake.

Oh, it travels much better now, what with bottling and all.  But on a ship that would take months to get to Europe and sake was stored in barrels that are at least partially made of rice straw (I've never had a chance to dissect a sake barrel) it wasn't something that was going to keep.  Wines in the Middle Ages/Renaissance had the same problem, but at least the distances were shorter.

Some sake is best warm and some is best cold.  Not all sake is the same.

It may be a sign of the Apocolypse, but liking sushi/sashimi is another thing that I can agree with GiC on.

Cleveland = "foor teriyaki"?  Intriguing name... must be a local speciality.  ;D

(I know it's a type.... at least I hope it is.)
